About me

Occupation Retired/Author
Location near Rochester, WA, United States
Introduction I've been writing off and on most of my life, but especially since I retired. I'm Mom to four grown kids (plus spouses and other "borrowed children") and have eight actual-descendant grandchildren, plus at least ten more who call me "Grandma." My works in print and ebook include the "Hall of Doors" children's fantasy series (The Mountains of the Moon, The Door in the Sky, The Mirror Door, The Secret Door, The Water Door) plus a sixth book in progress. The "Healer's Apprentice" YA science fiction series includes Fairy Gold, a novelet prequel, plus To Heal a Broken Planet, Into the Unknown, And The Stars Came Down. I also partnered with well-known Christian author Anita Donihue on an attitude-of-gratitude collection about homes, called A Home Where God Lives. I've participate so far in seven of Crimson Cloak Publishing's charity anthologies, with two more in progress, plus have a story in their anthology Crimson Timelines. My Mothers' and Christmas gift books are now available as reprints. For more, see my website or Amazon author's page.
